Similar - with one or two differences

I was surprised by the lack of pace in Mexico (or surprising pace in Germany).

Mexico killed themselves with conceding two early goals against a stout defending team like Germany. Further, they know Mexico's best player, Chicharito, as he in in the Bundesliga.

I don't think it is as bad as many will say as Germany, in my mind, has by far the most depth of any major power especially when you look at the quality of the resume's that the"B"side had.

Note, too, that the German U-21's beat a very good Spanish side today in the European U-21 final and you get an even better sense of their quality and depth.
